Summer Courses

Whether a story is an imaginative transformation of life experience or an invention, the writing must be well crafted and convincing, driven not only by plot and theme but also through characterization, conflict, point of view, and sensitivity to language. Students produce and critique short stories and novel chapters while studying fiction techniques and style through examples.

Emphasizing the basic linguistic structures and verb tenses, this course has been structured for true beginners of French. Using visual stimuli (advertisements, comics, photographs, etc.), students will learn to identify and describe places, people and things as well as more abstract spatial, temporal (hour, day, season), and emotional (feelings, thoughts and opinions) ideas. Readings from short texts and everyday encounters (Métro, bank, stores, markets and cafés, etc.) will further help students to quickly become self-sufficient through basic language skills.

Only visiting summer students should register in this course. To ensure that participants are placed in the appropriate level, all visiting students in the Immersion Program take an online placement test.
The course has an extra course fee of 100 euros.
